General Properties of Burton Panels
All Burton panels are:
The expanded polystyrene core (EPS) of Burton panels possesses the properties designated under Australian Standard 1366, Part 3-1992. EPS contains no fluorocarbon.
0.6mm CRP Colorbond® prepainted steel most commonly used (Surfmist, 25% gloss). Alternative colours and lining material options are available. Surfmist finish aluminium trims standard.
Panel linings are bonded to EPS core with synthetic thermo-setting polyurethane adhesive, creating a permanently stable panel under a wide range of conditions and temperatures. They thereby avoid the adverse and deforming tendencies often synonymous with thermo plastic adhesives.
Width: 1200mm standard
Length: Manufactured to customer’s requirements and only limited by transport constraints
Thickness: As per general properties table
Prefabricated panels are assembled and sealed to form an effective vapour barrier. No framework or stud system is used in this construction system. The high strength to weight ratio of Burton panel generally allows wall construction without the need for load bearing foundations. A steel framed roof is normally required where panels are used for ceiling/roof construction in large buildings.
Elevated Surface Temperature
Maximum continuous surface temperature is 76.7°C, although Burton panel can be exposed to higher temperatures for short periods without affecting its properties.
